Baby Room (0-2 Years – Ratio 1:3)
The baby room provides a quiet calm, colourful environment for our youngest clients. A soft safe area for inquisitive minds and crawling babies gives them a chance to explore without worry, and satisfy curiosity about how things move and work. Facilities include a separate sleep room or if preferred a decked area leads from the main room where babies may sleep in prams if preferred. Stories, songs and plenty of chatter and love will all help your baby develop at their own pace.
Toddler Area (2-3 Years – Ratio 1:4)
A chance to spread their wings into the larger Nursery area whilst within their own peer group. New challenges of play in sand, water and creative activities are all ready for their own choice. All children will be supervised when using the facilities such as the large outdoor play area with its tunnels, slides and tricycles. Cooking sessions allow new experiments in baking and cleaning up, whilst a quiet area for sleeping, resting and the book corner all help a young child to pace themselves.
Nursery and Pre-School (3-5 Years – Ratio 1:8)
Older children begin to develop the ability to sort out the emotional and social skills needed when they begin school. Independence in dressing, eating and decision making, awareness of others around them and the need to care and share are all fostered and encouraged by the staff. Tasks to help concentration span, hand/eye co-ordination and matching skills are all provided to help children gain the experience they need for later life and the entry to school at 4+. To assist with these aims the children have access to their own computers.
All children are able to progress at their own rate in all areas of development; therefore we are able to offer places for children with special needs or disabilities. We are experienced at working in close liaison with professionals, across the range of special needs. If you would like to discuss the group’s ability to meet your own child’s special needs, please talk to the Nursery Manager.
